    Which broadhead would work best for a 25.5″dl and 50-52 pounds?
    Thanks.

    I’d say Grim Reaper or any other BIG expandable. My friend used the Turkey Tom a Hawk last year and it was devestating! I’m picking up a pack this year before season :thumbup

    Yup, what he said. Look for big! For a turkey you want to transfer all the energy to the bird. Not really looking for a pass through like on a deer. I use the Magnus Bullheads for close range shots. In the past I have had Rage 2 blade in the quiver, this year will be Grim Reaper 2 in Whitetail Specials. Cut em up and drop them in their tracks :thumbup

    I’ve had great results with Rage 2 but any big expandable will work!

    So what you guys are saying is that I should use a large expandable broadhead even with my low poundage and short draw length???

    What broadhead of the ones I have listed would be the best? Because those are the ones I already own.

    With the heads you have listed I’d either go with the rage or the bloodrunners :thumbup All four would do the trick with a properly placed arrow, find the one the flies the best for your setup :thumbup
    Personnaly I use the 2″ grim reapers [=}=]

    Like Jason said…with turkey your not dealing with heavy bone or hide it’s pretty much where you hit them that counts. [=}=]

    I think youre going to have problems if you try and use an expandable with your set up. You would be better off with a cut on contact fixed blade. Feathers are a hard thing to penetrate with lower poundage and an expandable. I have seen expandables bounce off feathers with lower poundage bows. Of course this is just my opinion. I think you would be better off shooting the Magnus out of your choices and concentrating on shot placement. Let the birds get close then it will make it that much easier for you to get a solid hit. I personally shoot a NAP Gobbler Getter but I shoot 31″ draw and 75lbs.
